CAN Module Carrier with up to 16x CAN-FD

The SF2-CANDY is a quad PCI Express® Mini Card carrier, suitable for CompactPCI® Serial systems. The board can be used together with PCIe® based CAN fieldbus modules, available as single-port, dual-port or even quad-port CAN controllers. This results in a scalable solution from 1 up to 16 CAN I/O ports, wired to a common D-SUB front panel connector. Validated CAN modules are available for classic CAN 2.0A/B, and also CAN FD (Flexible Data Rate).

Two front panel connector solutions are available from stock, either D-SUB 25-position for up to 8 CAN 2.0B ports, or D-SUB 50-position for up to 16 CAN-FD ports. Each CAN port is individually isolated for optimum fieldbus reliability. The SF2-CANDY is equipped with an on-board PCI Express® packet switch, and can be installed into any peripheral slot of a CompactPCI® Serial backplane.
